Cryotherapy Frequently Asked Questions

How does Cryotherapy work?

 Cryotherapy uses gasiform nitrogen to lower the skin surface temperature from normal body temperature to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in 30 seconds or less and keeps it that way for two to three minutes. The skin reacts to the cold and sends messages to the brain that acts as a stimulant to the regulatory functions of the body. It produces the scanning of all areas that may not be working to their fullest potential. 

How do I feel after a Cryotherapy session?

 During each session the body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. The buoyant effects from each session typically last 6 to 8 hours and increase with number of sessions. Many clients have expressed that they have the best night of sleep after a Cryo session. 

Is it comfortable? What do I wear?

Before entering the cryosauna, clients are required to dress in protective clothing composed of dry cotton socks, dry cotton gloves, slippers and underwear (men), all of which we provide. Only your hands and face are visible to the operator during the procedure, so modesty is preserved at all times. Additionally, it is a dry, gaseous cold. Which means the session is tolerable even to those who may consider themselves cold-intolerant. 

Do I have to take a shower before and/or after the session?

 No, you don’t. Cryotherapy is absolutely dry and does not make your skin wet. Many clients pop over during a lunch break or on their way to work!It is extremely convenient to fit into a busy schedule.
